Mutational scanning technologies and Multiplex Assays of Variant Effects (MAVEs) are key to variant interpretation and transform our understanding of the human genome.
At the 6th annual meeting of the ‘Mutational Scanning Symposium’, experts in the fields of functional genomics, protein science, precision medicine, variant interpretation, and computational genetics come from around the world to meet, present their work, discuss new methods and provide insights on the future of this science.
The conference will be a two-day hybrid meeting with onsite or virtual attendance. Discussions will centre on a variety of exciting topics, including computational variant effect prediction, saturation mutagenesis, sequence/structure/function relationships, high throughput assays and protein engineering. We will also explore emerging technologies for functional assays and provide a forum to discuss how to apply functional data to clinical practice.
One day before the conference, on the afternoon of 12 July, we will discuss mutational scanning approaches in clinical decision-making at the “Scanning the Clinical Genome” workshop. Registration for this face-to-face workshop will be taken separately from the conference and the number of participants will be limited.
Wellcome Connecting Science will be hosting this year’s conference, which is in association with the Atlas of Variant Effects Alliance.
